Mountain Warehouse Tent Finder Review


Mountain Warehouse Tent Finder Review


When we were told that we were the Official Blogger for Big Family Festival, we were extremely excited. This is because this will be our first family festival as well as it will be our first family camping trip ever too!

I was both nervous and excited. I am nervous as we are a total novice at family camping. As mentioned in my BFF review – it only took us an hour and half to figure out how to put the tent up. Haha  Well… more about that on another post…

Now though, I want to talk about this little nifty gadget we were sent from Mountain Warehouse…

If you already my Instagram follower @ethannevelyn you’d probably have been notified that I was also invited by Mountain Warehouse to do an Instagram Takeover for the whole weekend too. So excited! This was my first Instagram Takeover and I think I did a rather good job at it. Here’s my take on Tent Finder tested on the campsite:



What do you think of this little nifty gadget? It certainly helps if you need to go to the portaloo at night don’t you think. For under a tenner – I think it is such a bargain and a very useful thing to have!

Do also give @mountainwarehouse a follow too if you haven’t already.

      Yes, we did the first night, when we went to do a little exploring at the festival. But not the second night because it was pouring down with so much we decided to stayed in. x

    What a really good idea and a great gadget. I would never have thought of it, but I’m sure it was helpful in the dark when all the tents look the same especially. Hope you had a good time, thanks for linking this up with us at our #SnappedUp linky

    • 11/08/2017 / 2:18 pm

      I thought so as well. We had a great time. Thank you for hosting Carol. x

    What a neat idea! Like a car alarm, for your tent! ha ha You’re right: This would come in handy at nighttime, especially with kids and using the potty. It would be handy if you’re camping during a busy time too! #fabfridaypost

    • 13/08/2017 / 1:34 am

      Yes! That’s right – a bit like a car alarm. Isn’t this a fab gadget to have when nature calls. lol! x

    • 13/08/2017 / 1:39 am

      Really! It would be great on cars in a big parking lot. I am always loosing my car parks. lol!

  3. 11/08/2017 / 10:48 pm

    What a fab idea!! I remember going camping one and literally spending hours trying to find our tent!! I will definitely be getting one of these when we go camping next! #fabfridaypost

    • 13/08/2017 / 1:41 am

      Oh noo! Yes, you will need one of these little nifty gadget. The kids will love playing with it. lol! x

  4. 12/08/2017 / 2:44 am

    That seems like a neat gadget. My kids would be wandering off on purpose to push button and find their way back! I have yet to take my kids camping, but I would so love to go soon!

    • 13/08/2017 / 1:44 am

      lol! That’s so funny! I suggest do a test run first at home. lol! x

  5. 12/08/2017 / 2:37 pm

    This is genius, I always wonder how people find their tent at a festival! Such a great idea, I didn’t even know anything like that existed. I could do with one for my car, I’m always losing it. Hope you enjoyed the festival and your first camping experience. Thanks for linking up with us #AdventureCalling

    • 13/08/2017 / 1:47 am

      I know! It’s awesome isn’t it. Yes! & one for the car too! What a great idea! I’m always losing my sense of direction to finding my own car in the parking lot too! lol! Thank you for hosting. x

  6. 12/08/2017 / 6:11 pm

    This is a great idea – I would always lose our tent my sense of direction is not the best. Sarah #FabFridayPost

    • 13/08/2017 / 1:49 am

      It’s great isn’t it. Perhaps, I should stick one on the backpack of the kids too – so I can find them in the crowded places. I’m sure the kids will love playing around with it first though. lol x

  7. 12/08/2017 / 8:28 pm

    Such a great idea for those late night trips to the loo, finding your tent in the dark can be a nightmare x

    • 13/08/2017 / 1:50 am

      I agree! You wouldn’t want to step inside someone’s else tent do we. x

  8. 12/08/2017 / 11:54 pm

    We tried our tents out today with the idea of sleeping in the garden in the week and having a night away later in the month. If we go to a big campsite this would be really helpful as I have no sense of direction! #snappedup

    • 13/08/2017 / 1:52 am

      It is very handy isn’t it. & It comes with battery too! I hope you’ll have fun at camping if you decided to go. We love to hear all about it. x

  9. 13/08/2017 / 10:54 am

    I’d never heard of this before – but it’s a fantastic idea. I think I need to install this on the roof of my car so I know where I’ve parked at the shopping mall!

  10. 13/08/2017 / 3:17 pm

    This is a great idea, like the find my phone app I have needed that so many times, this is a really helpful gadget! #FabFridayPost

    • 17/08/2017 / 1:31 pm

      Oh yes! I’ve never use the find my phone app but I sooo need one! lol! x

  11. 13/08/2017 / 6:15 pm

    That is a genius idea and I never knew such a thing existed. We never went camping as kids but my own kids have now started asking to go camping! Ill definitely but looking into something like this.

    • 17/08/2017 / 1:42 pm

      I know! It’s brillant isn’t it. The kids will love it. A memory to treasure. x

  12. 14/08/2017 / 2:59 am

    Since I have never been to a festival like this (which looks so very cool), I would have never dreamt of such an issue! But it makes total sense! I love it! Looks like fun too! You do the coolest things, Su! #FabFridayPost xo

    • 17/08/2017 / 1:55 pm

      lol! Thanks Lisa, we try to keep the kids entertain as much as possible. They are pulling me hair out this Summer! lol! xx

  13. 14/08/2017 / 2:13 pm

    What an absolute bargain, and a nifty gadget at that. We have never been camping before as a family, but I have a couple of festivals in mind for next year, so this would be perfect for us. It reminds me of that device that helps you find your keys. Fab review! #DreamTeam x

    • 17/08/2017 / 2:01 pm

      I know! I can’t believe it is under a tenner! Oh I think your kids will love it. It will make such a lovely family memories. & Yes, I need that device to find my keys too. I keep loosing it all the time! lol!

  14. 14/08/2017 / 8:46 pm

    I forgot to ask…how was the big family festival. I know of a couple of other people who went who know the organiser but haven’t managed to speak to them yet. I hope you all had fun. Thanks for joining us on #adventurecalling I hope you can again this week.

    • 17/08/2017 / 2:05 pm

      It was a reasonable size. There were a lot of campers there. Not too crowded which I like. The festival itself was not too big either but large enough and plenty to do for the kids. It was a chill atmosphere not too hectic. It was just right I though. Thanks for hosting. 🙂

  15. 17/08/2017 / 9:56 pm

    I would definitely need this if I go camping. Great post. xx
